Some lighter stuff. . .

”I'm also reading some very entertaining children's fiction. Hannah dragged home about 4 kilos of books from her library visit yesterday.

The one I read to her tonight is a 25 year old story called The Wild Washerwomen! 7 wild washerwomen go on a violent but funny rampage lasting weeks. They had had it with their exploitative boss and tipped a pile of dirty washing on him before wreaking havoc on their own village and the surrounding ones, travelling around on a carriage drawn by a mad goat!

Challenging stuff for Hannah at bedtime - she needed to knit a few rows of scarf to settle down after hearing of the slightly violent triumph of those washerwomen!”
